What are the chambers' names in a rat's heart?

Same as humans. Right atrium, left atrium, right ventricle and left ventricle.


Which two chambers of the heart contract at the same time?

both the right atrium and the left atrium contract at the same time


Is the right or left ventricle bigger?

A ventricle is a part inthe heart that takes blood in from the right or left atrium. A ventricle is part in the heart that takes blood in from the right or left atrium. The ventricles are the same size. However, the muscle around the left ventricle is thicker.


What happen when the right atrium contracts?

Blood goes from the right atrium into the right ventricle, through the tricuspid valve. At the same time, the Left atrium also contracts and forces blood from the left atrium into the left ventricle, through the bicuspid (mitral) valve.


What are the upper chambers of the heart and how do they function?

You have left and right atrium. Right atrium gets blood from whole body and pump it into right ventricle. The left atrium gets blood from lungs and pumps the same into left ventricle. You have valves to help in this function.


Name of the chambers of the heart?

The heart is made up of muscles and there are four chambers in the heart. Twoventricles and two atrium. A right ventricle and a left ventricle, and a right atrium and left atrium make up the human heart. It is the same for most mammals.


Name the 2 chambers contract at the same time in heart?

The left and right atrium contract at the same time


What is the placental mammal's structure of the heart?

All mammals (monotremes, marsupials, and placental mammals) have the same heart structure: a four chambered heart. The four chambers are the left atrium, the left ventricle, the right atrium, and the right ventricle. The right atrium receives deoxygenated blood from the veins. It pumps it into the right ventricle. The right ventricle pumps it into the pulmonary arteries, which go to the lungs. The lungs have received oxygen and give it to the blood coming through. The now oxygenated blood flows back to the heart by pulmonary veins, and is received by the left atrium. The left atrium pumps the oxygenated blood into the left ventricle. The left ventricle pumps the blood to all of the body through arteries.

What are the four chambers of the cow heart?

The four chambers of a cow's heart are the same as a human's: left atrium, left ventricle, right atrium, right ventricle. In addition to the four main chambers, however, there are two accessory chambers that function as additions to the atrium. These are called the left and right auricles, and are outpouchings on the left and right atria respectively.


List in order the arteries as they leave the heart?

Since both sides of the heart contract at the same time, the right ventricle pumps blood into the pulmonary trunk, and the left ventricle pumps blood into the Aorta.


Do the right and left side of the heart pump blood at the same time?

The right and left ventricles of the heart contract, or pump blood, at the same time. The right ventricle pumps blood to the lungs, and the left ventricle pumps blood to the body.


What do the 4 valves of the heart do?

The valves of the heart are the tricuspid valve, pulmonary valve, mitral valve, and the aortic valve. Its functions: Tricuspid Valve: This valve separates the right atrium from the left ventricle and regulates the blood flow between them. It allow blood to flow from the right atrium into the right ventricle, and prevent back flow of the same. Pulmonary Valve: This valve separates the right ventricle from the left pulmonary artery. These valves prevent the control of flow of the blood from the right ventricle into the left pulmonary artery. Mitral Valve: This valve (also known as the bicuspid valve) prevents the backflow of blood from the left ventricle into the left atrium. Aortic Valve: It controls the blood flow from the ventricle into the rest of the body.


What is the function of the right and left atrium in frogs?

Same as your and my heart, they gather blood from the veins, put it into the frogs single ventricle, and pump it out to the lungs and body.


How do valves work?

The heart has two upper chambers called the right and left atria and two lower chambers called the right and left ventricles. On the right side of the heart, blood lacking oxygen returns from the body into the right atrium. The tricuspid valve connects the right atrium to the right ventricle and opens allowing blood to flow from the right atrium to the right ventricle when the heart is not contracting. When the heart contracts, the tricuspid valve closes preventing blood from flowing backwards from the right ventricle into the right atrium. Then the right ventricle ejects blood across the pulmonic valve into the pulmonary arteries and eventually the lungs. The pulmonic valve closes preventing blood from flowing backwards from the lungs into the right ventricle. After blood passes through the lungs, picking up oxygen, it arrives in the left atrium and crosses the mitral valve into the left ventricle. When the heart contracts, the mitral valve closes, preventing blood from flowing backwards from the left ventricle to the left atrium. The left ventricle ejects blood across the aortic valve into the aorta and the rest of the body. Then the aortic valve closes, preventing blood from flowing backwards from the body into the left ventricle. Of course in reality, blood flows to both sides of the heart at the same time, with heart valves on both sides opening and closing at the same time.


What is the ventricle?

The right and left ventricle almost have the same job. The left ventricle has a harder job then the right ventricle. The right ventricle only has to contract and blood is forced out of the heart through a large vessel. And then has to pump the blood into the lungs. The left ventricle has a lot harder job it actually works six times more harder then the right ventricle. The left ventricle has to pump blood through your WHOLE body. Yea it has a lot harder job. :)


Does the upper chambers of the heart receive blood or pushes blood out?

Your right atrium gets the blood supply from the superior and inferior vena cave. The chamber push the blood to the right lower chamber or the right ventricle. The left ventricle gets the blood supply from the lungs and push the same to left ventricle.


Do all cardiac muscle fibers all contract at the same time?

No. The heart muscle contracts in sections, first the top (atrium) then the bottom (ventricle). But when it is working properly, the heart muscle fibers contract together in large groups.


Why do blood in the left atrium and blood in the left ventricle have similar oxygen levels?

This blood is coming from the lungs. Also the left atrium is just a holding place for blood while the left ventricle pumps the blood to the aorta. The blood is basically the same. It just moves from one place to another. It also doesn't use the oxygen from the blood while in the heart. It has coronary arteries that give the heart blood.


Where does the blood go once it is in the atria?

It goes directly from either atrium to the ventricle on the same side.


What is the difference between the left and right atria in the frog?

Frogs have two very primitive atria (upper chambers) and only one ventricle. The atrium are the same in structure.


Why is it necessary to have a septum to separate the right and left chambers of the heart?

If there was no septum there could be no separation of oxygenated and de-oxygenated blood. Blood flow goes right atrium --> right ventricle --> lungs --> left atrium --> left ventricle --> aorta --> body. If there was no way to separate right and left mixing blood would travel through the body and the heart would have to pump 2x as hard to get the same oxygen levels to the body.


Does the blood enter the arteries when the ventricles relax or when they contract?

Blood can only enter an artery, be it the aorta, when the left ventricle contracts, or the pulmonary arteries, when the right ventricle contracts, which both occur at the same time after ventricular systole which is contraction. Therefore, the answer is contract.


Which side of the heart does blood go in to?

Both! Blood enters the atria (upper chambers) on both sides of the heart at the same time. Blood from the body, carrying carbon dioxide, enters the right atrium. Blood from the lungs, carrying oxygen, enters the left atrium. The two atria contract together, pumping the blood into the two ventricles (lower chambers). The ventricles then contract, pumping blood out of the heart. Blood from the right ventricle goes to the lungs, where it loses its carbon dioxide and picks up oxygen. It then goes to the left atrium. Blood from the left ventricle goes to the body, where it delivers oxygen and picks up carbon dioxide. See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/body/factfiles/heart/heart.shtml


The atria and ventricles contract at the same time?

no if it did you would be dead Haha, funny, but true. If this question is asking, "do the atria contract at the same time, and then the ventricles contract after at the same time" - yes, that would be correct. Some people split hairs here and talk about how the SA node is in the right atrium, and so it fires first, and that the left ventricle has a stronger, longer contraction so it has to fire first - but this is really splitting hairs. Remember these are electrical impulses, and are meant to fire the atria pretty much at the same time, then both ventricles at the same time. Incedently, the left ventricle is a stonger, thicker part of the heart due to the demand of sending blood into the systemic circuit.
